Bird Ridge Trailhead

Seward Highway
Anchorage, AK 99501

The Bird Ridge Trailhead is located along Turnagain Arm. The Trailhead provides access to Bird Ridge, which is a steep mountain hike. An Americans with Disabilities (ADA) accessible trail is available. The Bird Ridge Trailhead provides access to one of the first spring hiking opportunities in Chugach State Park. While this trail is somewhat steep and vigorous, views of Turnagain Arm and the Park's interior make the effort worthwhile for many. Ample parking a short interpretive trail that is easily accessible are features of a recent renovation.
